This weekend, James and I traveled outside of Dallas to teach the PRI Fitness and Movement course for the 5th time. Thank you to Trey, Charles, and Jonathon for their gracious hospitality and welcoming us into the awesome EXOS facility in Frisco, Texas. It is exciting to be apart of the evolution of the PRI Fitness & Movement course. It continues to come together and surpass people’s expectations. I am so grateful for those that shared their appreciation and thoughts with me after course. We are receiving very positive feedback from both PRCs, experienced PRI practitioners, as well as from the attendees who are new to the PRI science. The course does deliver a lot of content, so much so, we’ve had two attendees repeating the course for the second time already this year! Another 2 this weekend told me that the material blew their mind, and they can’t wait to take it again next year! I think this is great. Each time we take a PRI course we learn more application of PRI and fine tune our understanding of a complex and integrated science. This course brings us back to the basics and reminds us how powerful getting really good with the basics can be! I do believe this is one of those courses you can and should repeat to enhance your understanding, as well as find inspiration and new stuff to integrate!
For this review I thought readers may be more interested in hearing from actual participants:
Josh Ogden, Collegiate Athletic Training: “First of all, I want to thank you for putting together a great course and an excellent presentation this past weekend. In athletic training, at least in my setting, we don’t usually deal in either pure rehabilitation cases or pure performance settings, but in bridging the gap between those two domains. Your course this past weekend was excellent for me because it really helped me see how to integrate all of the information and techniques I’ve learned in all of my previous PRI courses and immediately apply it in the athletic training room to transition my rehab cases into more functional, sport performance work. Prior to this, the patterns, repositioning techniques, etc. all made perfect sense to me, but I had no clue how to get my patients up off of the table and into more performance based rehabilitation; by Sunday afternoon, I was already redesigning programs based on what I learned this weekend and was able to immediately apply the course on Monday morning. This course makes the others all make sense and is seamlessly integrable with all of the techniques I was already doing. After one day with the changes I implemented this past Monday after the course, the only patient I’ve got in town right now sent me a text as soon as he woke up today asking for an off or light day because he was so sore in the muscle groups we’d targeted.”
John Glenn, Personal Training Fitness: “What a great course!!!! You have done a great job putting this together. I really appreciate how open and honest you were telling about your past experiences, success and "failures". I am going to pursue the study of PRI, this was my first course.”
Navin Hettiarachchi, Professional Athletics: “Thank you very much for a great seminar! First seminar was good, but this one was Great!! This time around the content and the presentation was taken to another level. I loved it!!“
James Anderson – Professional PRI extraordinaire: “I have really enjoyed the evolution of the PRI Integration for Fitness and Movement course, with Julie getting better each time she has the opportunity to present. Her confidence levels are high, and I consistently hear people experienced and even certified in PRI say that her presentation expanded their overall view of thoracic movement dynamics, tri-planer ground-based performance, and integrated movement sequence. They say this material has really helped to bridge the gap between PRI sidelying rehab programs that they would like to get up into standing and having success with dynamic standing training techniques. Well done Julie!”
Thanks Guys! I am definitely looking forward to teaching our remaining courses for 2016 – Boston next month (which is already sold out) and Phoenix in November. If you have any interest in going, don't hesitate to sign up! You won't be disappointed! Hope to see you there!
